Schmeier Group

Computational Biology // Massey University

We analyse genomic, transcriptomic, and epigenetic data from high-throughput experiments to solve biological problems. Please have a look at our research page, our publications, and our tools to get a quick overview of our work.

We are affiliated with the genomics service company NZGL. Feel free to contact us should you be interested in undertaking genomics work. We are happy to discuss feasibility and experimental design, as well as to help analyse your data.

We run free of charge computational workshops. We teach basic computational skills for scientists under the umbrella of the Software and Data Carpentry, as well as more advanced workshops, e.g. in the bioinformatics field.
